2/3 King’s X + 1/2 Galactic Cowboys = The Jibbs

17th Sep 08 (Wed) 4 comments

Two-thirds of KING’S X and one half of GALACTIC COWBOYS have united as the new supergroup THE JIBBS.  Influenced by flamboyantly shiny clothing and the most traditional of country music, THE JIBBS bring a new slant to non-popular music. After taking a hit from Houston’s Hurricane Ike, these four men banded together over a candle and car battery to produce their debut single, “Burns in the Rain”, from the possibly forthcoming album, “What Would Jibb Do?”

THE JIBBS are:

Wally Jibb (Wally Farkas) – Acoustic Guitar, Lead Vocals
Alan Jibb (Alan Doss) – Drums, Pedal Steel, Bass, Vocals
Ty Jibb (Ty Tabor) – Electric Guitar, Vocals
dUg Jibb (Doug Pinnick) – Vocals

Available for only $1.49, “Burns in the Rain” is a limited-edition MP3 download that will directly aid THE JIBBS. In addition to the high-quality MP3, the zip file includes cover art, credits and lyrics sheet.

For more information, go to www.myspace.com/kingsx.

I’m listening to it now… it’s not like either King’s X or Galactic Cowboys.  It’s country themed with Wally on vocals & acoustic guitar, and backing vocals by the other three… different, but GREAT STUFF!  I dig Wally’s solo stuff, and while he’s usually more in the Beatles and 60s/70s rock realm, this one seems to fit in his repertoire as well.  I’m curious what a full The JIBBS album would be like.  I hope it’s more than possibly forthcoming…
